Carilion closing in on new health care approach

Carilion Clinic's efforts to systematically change the way it provides health care are coming into sharper focus.

The region's largest health care provider is pulling data and inking plans to help patients establish stronger relationships with their primary care doctors in an effort to keep patients out of the hospital and away from the emergency room. At the same time, Carilion's executives say they are closer to signing a deal with private insurance companies to establish a new payment system that rewards keeping patients healthy.
